Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna Traded to St. Louis Cardinals

December 13th, 2017

The first big deal of MLB's Winter Meetings came down on Wednesday morning. The Miami Marlins traded outfielder Marcell Ozuna to the St. Louis Cardinals for a package of prospects, SiriusXM's Craig Mish first reported completion of the deal.

St. Louis wanted to add a big bat this offseason and upgrade its corner outfield, Ozuna does just that. In 159 games last season, Ozuna posted a .312/.376/.548 slash line with a .388 wOBA, 142 wRC+ and 37 home runs. He should slide in immediately as the Cardinals' left fielder for the next two-plus seasons.
